My last two posts – covering ordination and the role of pastor – have been fairly serious (but certainly worth reading if you missed them). So this morning I’m going to catch up on a few photos.

It’s been a beautiful few days around Wake Forest and I was able to take dad for a walk in one of the town parks Tuesday morning. The trees around our home have leafed out more than ever before, some of the summer flowers are blooming, and – after a few years establishing themselves – our Japanese Myrtles are beginning to make an impact.

Then, something we’ve been hoping to seeĀ for a month, the family of hawks who summer on our property have finally moved back. Hopefully, over time I will capture more images of the hawks in action; they really are magnificent.

Click on the first photo, then advance them like a slide show. And, enjoy – this surely is a beautiful place to live – DEREK
